yeah, sounds REAL easy. I prefer to just check the f'n box here. Now THAT is easy.

I don't mean to bad mouth the other place. I haven't really been there. Just checked it out real quick. Sounds way too nice for my tastes. I guess I never really clicked with the " kind veggie burrito" suburban kid turned hippie crowd.

Going off on a tangent ( as usual )- I NEVER understood, and I still don't, how this whole fake peace and love shit got thrown on the band. First of all I never bought into that whole fashion show - whoever bathes the least and walks the filthy city streets barefoot or whoever knows someone who knows someone is the Deadest of all. I allways thought it was just as shallow as a lot of cliques in High school. Second, the band seemed the exact opposite of everything alot of these lot rats stood for: they smoked, ate MEAT, did hard drugs, were sharp tongued, geez I could go on and on.

To me they were anarchistic and independant allmost right up to the end, or at least to when I stopped seeing them around 91 ( I mean they had barely graduated to ONLY playing large venues and their tickets at that time were still an easy $5 less than any of their contemporaries). I never understood why they didn't ever get respect from independant types - both fans and artists. I mean whether one likes the music or not is personal taste, but the distain that would get heaped on them I allways felt was SO unjust. That's why I am always so glad to hear when they get the respect of independant/punk/etc. artists like Patti Smith and Elvis Costello.

Hopefully I didn't offend anyone with my views on the fake hippie fashion thing but that's my honest take on it.

Glad you'll still be spending a little time slumming it with us reprobates at the archive. I'd miss you if you were gone.

Asshole.
